Set clifftop where the rainforest meets the sea, Secret Bay is among the leading boutique resorts in the world. The secluded six-star, all-villa resort consists of elegantly appointed, residential-style villas, each with private plunge pool, on-call concierge, chefs and guides, access to a secret beach and transformative experiences curated specifically for each guest. Experience personalized service like never before with a dedicated villa host who tailors everything from bedding to food preferences to your specific lifestyle, desires and preferences. With every little thing taken care of, you have the opportunity to sit back, relax and enjoy the bespoke, under-the-radar escape you’ve only dreamed of.



Just beyond your Secret Bay open-air villa lie boundless opportunities to explore the sheer serenity of the Indian River. A haven for birdwatchers, the river leads you deep into the forest, past mangroves and the amazing bwa mang trees. Take a guided kayak or boat ride up this magical river and see for yourself where scenes from Pirates of the Caribbean were filmed. Up the river stop for a “dynamite” rum punch at the mellow bar along the way that was a popular haunt with the cast and crew.

  • Accommodations in a stunning treehouse villa that resembles a ylang ylang flower
  • Dedicated villa host who tailors your stay to your preferences
  • Organic breakfast basket delivered daily to your villa 
  • Guided kayak or boat tour past mangroves and bwa mang trees
  • Visit to a riverside bar for an authentic rum punch experience



What time are check-in and check-out?

Check-in is at 3 pm and check-out is at 11 am. We will do our best to accommodate early arrivals and late departures.

Can we drink the water in the villas?

Yes, the water is safe to drink and meets World Health Organisation Standards. It comes straight from the Picard River which flows down from Morne Diablotins and this water supplies the entire city of Portsmouth. We have also eliminated all single-use plastic bottles by introducing reusable borosilicate glass bottles for guests with an under-sink Culligan water filtration system in each villa.

Do we need to bring bug repellent? 

Secret Bay is perched on top of a cliff and benefits from cooling sea breezes so we are not too troubled by mosquitoes. There is a short spell at sunset when some sandflies make a brief appearance as a gentle reminder that you are surrounded by nature in all its glory, but repellent keeps them at bay and they don’t stick around for long. All the properties are fitted with anti-mosquito screens. If you are planning on hiking in the rainforest it would be a good idea to bring repellent and to wear long trousers.

What clothes should we bring?

There is no dress code at Secret Bay. In your private and secluded villa, we want you to feel at home. The weather is warm year-round with a slight breeze at night. Dominicans generally dress casually and informally but do enjoy dressing up for special occasions. Comfortable summer clothes are suitable with a light sweater for the evening. If you are planning on hiking you will need proper hiking shoes and long trousers. And don’t forget your swimsuits and sunscreen!

What is there to do in the evenings?

Enjoy an al fresco dinner on your open-air villa deck to the tune of a one-man Jazz concert or indulge in an unforgettable meal at Secret Bay’s Zing Zing restaurant, where Executive Chef Fabio Fernandes offers a “no menu” dining experience set to jaw-dropping views of Tibay Beach. If you’re in the mood for exploring, head to a Dominican rum shop to soak up some local culture or go check out the music scene in one of the quaint bars in Roseau. Otherwise, relax beneath a star-filled sky from your private plunge pool and listen to the enchanting noises of the forest from the comfort of your villa nestled in the trees. All villas are also equipped with books, games, cable television, Wi-Fi and an audiovisual system.

How close are medical services?

Medical facilities are close at hand: it is a ten-minute drive to the pharmacy and a fifteen-minute drive to Portsmouth Hospital. Secret Bay also has a doctor on call 24/7.

Are children welcome?

On exception, children under the age of 18 are welcome to stay in any of our one-bedroom villas with signed liability waiver from an accompanying parent or guardian. Children must be supervised at all times.

Is smoking permitted?

Secret Bay has been developed with an ethos of health and well-being. As such we do not allow smoking in the villas or at Zing Zing Restaurant. You are of course welcome to smoke in some of the many outdoor relaxation areas but we do ask that you remain considerate of your fellow guests in these public spaces.

Can we fly to Dominica by private jet?

Yes, you can. Dominica has two runways: Douglas Charles in the northeast and Canefield in the southwest of the island. Douglas Charles (TDPD/DOM) operates a 5761-ft. runway (09/27) and is open to the sea. There are ongoing upgrades to the airport, which offers Night VFR landing and an approved GPS instrument approach for runway 27. Canefield Airport, which is closer to the capital Roseau, operated a 3,100-ft. runway (01/19) along the Caribbean Sea coastline – Day VFR only. Both airports are approximately one hour’s drive from Secret Bay.

Can I use a drone?

For the safety and privacy of our guests, the resort prohibits the operation of aerial surveillance systems or drones on or above the resort.
